The things you do for your job
We all know how the job market works (or we think we do anyway) and if you have a job or a looking for one, you know how you bend over backwards to make sure you keep your job and please your boss in whatever dignified way you can. And if you have been unemployed some point in your life and got another one, you know how much you appreciate to even have a job (I have been unemployed two times and so I know how appreciative I am to have the current one). Now I have read and experienced the way people go out of their way to make their bosses happy (even if they don’t want to) helping and not saying a word about work or work load (sometimes) and doing extra work. Even coming early in the morning before your boss is in the office and leaving the office after he/she is long gone. You and your family who have gone through a lot during your unemployment period make sure now that you don’t do anything that will jeopardize your current job even sometimes your legitimate right at your job becomes like an issue as you don’t want to be seen as being lazy or not willing to go to that extra mile. When you are looking for a job, you want to look your best in terms of a perfect resume, outstanding cloths, unmatched etiquettes and manners just to impress the employer that you are the one who will contribute immensely to their company. And it goes on that although we don’t want to come off as being desperate to get a job but with all the perfection or near perfection we do in preparing for an interview, we do show that we are desperate and willing to get hands on that elusive checkbook and I believe that it not only happens in the U.S. but throughout the world that the things you do for your work that sometimes (but not always) you don’t do even for your family (although the job you are pursuing or wanting to pursue is also for your family).
